What do you think is the worst registrarar ? I think its godaddy
Why would you think they are the worst? Just because they supported a bs bill?
I do not like them because of the prices. I prefer to use Namecheap!
I think its either godaddy or 1&1
I dont like them because:
The CEO shot a baby elephant
They support SOPA
Their CP is complicated
Their prices are too high.
They also spam!
There are numerous scam domain registrars and I think GoDaddy certainly beat them. There's also lots of small companies that offer domain registration that aren't great. Although NameCheap, Name and others are better than GoDaddy it's still not a bad system. I've not really had any bad experiences except iPage trying to make me pay $15 to keep a domain I don't want. :L
One and one did the same thing to me, They sent me like 15 letters saying I owed them X amount of money for renewals that I did not authorize. I just ignored them and I refuse to pay something that I did not say I wanted renewing.
Godaddy often sends me spam in my inbox and I don't like how their control panel is, they support and helped create SOPA too which they are trying to manipulate for their own personal gain. They did pull official support of SOPA but they do still support it.
GoDaddy send me about a spam message a month, I can deal with that. I don't think we should be saying their overall service isn't bad because they support SOPA, however you have every right not to use them because of their support for it.
Gotta agree here. They have always treated me nice, and I get a few spam emails here and there...who cares?
I don't really hate a registrar yet, hope for it to stay that way
I cannot possibly move my domain away from godaddy.. not because I like them but because they wont let me and said I need to send them written permission in the mail with 3 copies of photo id, utility bills and more
Haha you paid for that stupid domain protection thing. LOL
Just tell you know so let's stay away from MyHosting.com. They had very old domain control panel which waste your time. )
I would have to say 1&1 as they are complete rip off garbage.
Just tell you so must stay away from MyHosting.com, they kept old version domain control panel which waste your time.
I dont find anyone worse!!!!
I don't think GoDaddy is the worst registrar. Probably just one of the most hated registrars right now. I think the worst ones in general are the ones that have a really low registration price and then have an insanely high renewal price. It was not good that they did something to delay transfers to Namecheap a few days before the boycott but I think they still manage the most domains so there's gotta be worse registrars than them.
I used GoDaddy today because it was the cheapest I could find... .com domain for ~6€.
I can't say which is worst I have used godaddy for a very long time and never had problems with them.
I've only ever used NameCheap and the free domain that comes with DreamHost and both are absolutely amazing, so I can't say.
Only have used Network Solutions & Namecheap and never had issue with them at all
